The result of the division is as follows: For 66, Against 57, Abstentions 2.

Motion agreed to.

That the Parliament endorses the decision to provide its permanent home on the Holyrood site and authorises the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body to take forward the project in accordance with the plans developed by the EMBT/RMJM design team and within the time scale and cost estimates described in the Presiding Officer's note to members of 9 June 1999.

Photo of Lord David Steel Lord David Steel Presiding Officer, Scottish Parliament

In my capacity as chairman of the corporate body, I wish to say that we will take forward the Parliament's decision and that we shall do so openly, with maximum consultation and listening to constructive criticism as we go. I hope that, in that spirit, the Parliament will unite behind the decision that has just been reached and the efforts of the corporate body to implement it.

Photo of Andrew Wilson Andrew Wilson Scottish National Party

On a point of order. May I ask the Presiding Officer and chairman of the corporate body whether the corporate body will have access to commercially confidential material relating to the Holyrood project?

Photo of Andrew Wilson Andrew Wilson Scottish National Party

I beg your pardon, Presiding Officer. Will the corporate body, as the client, have access to commercially confidential material, and will it report that to the Parliament?

Photo of Lord David Steel Lord David Steel Presiding Officer, Scottish Parliament

We shall certainly have access to confidential material but, as we will be the clients, we have to be very careful about such material being passed around. Members will have to rely on us and on our judgment in these matters and, as I implied in my statement, members should bring any criticism of the project direct to me or to any of the five members of the corporate body. We will be as open as we can be, within the limits of normal commercial practice.

The next question before the chamber is, that amendment SM1-2.4, in the name of John Swinney, be agreed to. Are we all agreed?

Members:

No.

Photo of Dennis Canavan Dennis Canavan Independent

On a point of order, is the motion in Tom McCabe's name in order? As I understand it after previous explanation, the Parliament decided on a previous occasion that the European Committee and the Equal Opportunities Committee should have 13 members. Only 12 members are listed, so is the motion technically in order?

The motion is in order, Mr Canavan. The committees will have 13 members. There are vacancies at the moment.
